Taylor Swift is taking us again in time together with her rerecorded albums. Earlier this month, the singer introduced that she is prepping to launch her model of Fearless, and it has prompted loads of questions from followers. How will the rerecorded tracks evaluate to the originals? What are the brand new six songs from the vault? And eventually, will the album be eligible for a Grammy?
Swift’s Fearless album definitely obtained vital acclaim on the Grammy Awards in 2010. Not solely did it mark her first Grammy win for finest feminine nation vocal efficiency for “White Horse,” nevertheless it additionally took dwelling album of the 12 months, making a then-20-year-old Swift the youngest artist to win the award on the time. Because the album is so close to and pricey to followers hearts, we will not assist however surprise, will she be capable of make Grammy magic occur twice with the rerecorded album? The reply is a bit sophisticated.
In response to a Recording Academy spokesperson, “Present eligibility pointers would permit for the brand new performances and albums to be eligible in the event that they had been recorded inside the final 5 years. Nevertheless, not one of the older songs can be eligible for songwriting awards.” That being mentioned, Swift is releasing a complete batch of latest songs from “the vault” that will be eligible for songwriting classes since they’ve by no means been launched. The brand new songs would even be eligible for Grammys in efficiency classes since they’ve been recorded within the final 5 years.
After all, the truth that her rerecorded albums might be Grammy-eligible is getting some combined reactions. On the one hand, a Grammy nomination for these albums can be additional particular for Swift, as a result of she’s going to truly personal her work. Moreover, it may open the door for albums like Purple or Status – which many followers consider had been snubbed on the award present in earlier years – to lastly get the popularity they deserve. Nevertheless, as different folks have identified, Swift getting nominated for beforehand launched albums may take alternatives away from different up-and-coming artists. This previous 12 months alone, we noticed numerous snubs for deserving artists regardless of receiving vital acclaim and making their mark on the music charts.
Swift would not be the primary artist to obtain a Grammy nomination for rerecorded songs – Frank Sinatra’s Grammy-winning album A Man and His Music included rerecordings, and Nat King Cole was nominated for album of the 12 months for The Nat King Cole Story, which included rerecordings – so it can definitely be attention-grabbing to see how the Recording Academy approaches her new model of Fearless subsequent 12 months. Within the meantime, I will simply relish in all of her earlier accomplishments.
